Solidago nemoralis or Gray Goldenrod produces a radial cluster of gray-green basal leaves that put up a slender, upright stem with coarsely toothed leaves and spreading upper branches. These upper branches are covered in hundreds of tiny yellow flowers. The flowers are great pollinator attractors, and are often covered with insects when in bloom. Tiny seed heads follow the blooms in fall. Not as tall or as aggressive a spreader as other goldenrod species, this plant would be ideal for a smaller planting area.
